News and Notes
Just to verify.....
All players in the Pony and Colt divisions MUST play a minimum of 2 consecutive innings in the field AND receive one at bat BEFORE that player
can be substituted for. This includes starters.
Coaches, please remember, it is your responsibility to insure that your ROSTERED players play the minimum required games to insure that they are eligible to compete in the playoff games.
Please refer to and familiarize yourself with the new scheduling/rescheduling rules posted on this site.
There has been questions surrounding the "hit by pitch" rule. In the past we have used an "unwritten" rule that dictated that a pitcher must be removed if they hit 2 batters in an inning, or 3 in a game. After discussing this with the Executive Board, it was decided that since it was an "unwritten" rule, that we will discontinue applying it and instead refer to the High School rule(refer to 6-2, article #3). The High School rules allow for unlimited "hit" batters, except if the umpire feels it is intentional.
If you choose to use an EH in your batting order, please remember that you are not allowed to replace that EH with a substitute. That player is to remain the EH for the entire game. If the EH must be removed from the batting order for any reason, that spot will be an automatic out the next time that spot comes up in the batting order and from then on in it will be by-passed.
Please insure that all pegs are either positioned directly under the base, or placed facing the outfield and/or the sidelines. This is to insure that a sliding runner does not slide into the metal pegs.
